um. i can't see the screen shot (that is a local path)

do you get: Wiimote read error read error (nunchuck cal)

if so, the wiimote maybe connected (no blue lights on the wiimote) type: rostopic echo wiimote/state/buttons

the other thing i did is open up bluetooth in linux and pair the wiimote. i am not sure what worked
